Team of the Week: September 14
Bagging three wins in one week, including two away from home, is a good way to prep for conference play.
And while SMU has another weekend to go before jumping into action in the American Athletic Conference, the Mustangs spun off three wins over the past seven days. Sophomore center back Payton Doiron anchored those results, as the Mustangs beat Denver away, Oklahoma State at home and Rice on Sunday by a 1-0 score.
Doiron played every minute of all three games, scoring the winning goal against Oklahoma State. Backing it up in conference play is next on the agenda.
Check out some of the other top performances from the past week of the women’s Division I soccer season.
Team of the Week: September 6-12
GK Allie Augur, Georgetown – While the Hoyas surely would want to have more than three wins at this point, they still haven’t lost. Augur played a big role in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Rutgers, making eight saves. She also made a pair of stops in a 0-0 draw against West Virginia.
D Trinity Watson, Pepperdine – Winners of five straight now, the Waves are rolling after two more wins this past week. Watson had two assists against UC San Diego, and then bagged the winning goal over the weekend in a 3-0 defeat of UC Santa Barbara.
D Jordan Brewster, West Virginia – The central defender helped keep Georgetown from finding the back of the net in Thursday’s 0-0 draw. She also had an assist and helped her side keep a shutout in a 5-0 win against Saint Francis (PA).
M Hal Hershfelt, Clemson – A superb performance from Hershfelt helped the ACC side pick up bragging rights last Thursday in a 2-1 win against South Carolina. She scored goals in both games, also tallying in a 4-0 win over Gardner Webb.
M Miri Taylor, Hofstra – The Pride kept rolling last week, and have bounced back from a 2-1 defeat to Penn State at the end of August. Taylor was once again at the heart of it all, scoring three goals and chipping in two assists against Bucknell and Yale. She now has eight goals and five assists on the season.
F Heather MacNab, Princeton – It’s been a storming start for MacNab’s college career, as the 2020 graduate deferred enrollment until this year. She scored twice goals (both penalty kicks) and had two assists in a 4-3 victory against Rutgers. The freshman also assisted in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Rhode Island.
Honorable Mention: F Carly Thatcher (Auburn), M Julia Aronov (Seton Hall), F Audrey Harding (UNC Wilmington), GK Jessica Berlin (Seattle), M Emily Gray (Virginia Tech), F Sammi Fisher (Notre Dame), GK Lauren Brzykcy (UCLA), F Emma Marcus (Xavier), F Marcy Barberic (Buffalo), M Zoe Hasenauer (Oregon), F Molly Thompson (LSU), M Alexis Missimo (Texas)
